...again, who is gonna drops the gloves? They don't have anyone that will do it enough to even put a smidgen of a scare into any team. I am not saying they need a goon with no skills, but someone who is at least gonna stand up for their team.
There was multiple times the wings shoulda dropped the mitts last night, instead they gave a "facewash" or pushed and shoved. Im getting pretty sick of it..
IT doesn't even have to be a "Bob Probert" it could be a "Martin LaPointe" or a "Bob Rouse" or a "Gerard Gallant" or even a "Sean Avery." Problem is, Holland and Babcock do not like nor will they have on their team full time someone who is a fighter.
No way that ever would have happened if someone like the late great Bob Probert was still around. We need someone that can keep up with todays pace and contribute some points here and there and that other teams will think twice about when taking a run at jimmy. Or maybe just keep some beast chained up at the end of the bench and throw him the odd chicken bone to keep him satisfied till we need him. There is still a place in hockey for tough guys.
